It's Christmas once more...

Posted on January 26, 2016 at 6:40 PM

We say it every year, don’t we? “How did the year slip by so quickly?” And, indeed, it has done so, or has it? In actual terms the same amount of time has elapsed – the same amount of time elapses every year – so is it really about time, or really about us? I think we all know it is really about us, and the sheer pace of our lives that we now think is normal. But, compared to just a few years ago, it seems to me that life is much more hectic because of the choice...

The Charlie Charlie Phenomenon & the Normalisation of New Age Practices.

Posted on June 3, 2015 at 7:50 PM

I have become aware that there is a new game-craze sweeping across the schools of Australia. It is called Charlie-Charlie – and it is very, very dangerous. It’s demonic. There is nothing new under the sun according to Ecclesiastes. Indeed, Charlie-Charlie is nothing new – it is a revision of the ancient séance ‘game’ that keeps coming and going. But Charlie-Charlie requires no Ouija Board – just two pencils and a sheet of paper. It is every bit as dang...

Posted on July 2, 2014 at 9:10 PM

The seventh reason I believe on the resurrection of Jesus is because the New Testament witnesses do not bear the stamp of fraudsters or deceivers. How do you credit a witness?

Why I believe in the resurrection of Jesus the Christ #4

Posted on June 16, 2014 at 1:45 AM

Fifth, the sheer existence of a thriving, empire-conquering early Christian church supports the truth of the resurrection claim. The church spread on the power of the testimony that Jesus was raised from the dead and that God had thus made him both Lord and Christ (Acts 2:36). The Lordship of Christ over all nations is based on his victory over death. This is the message that spread all over the world – it was the one chief characteristic of the message of the early church; and its powe...

Why I believe in the resurrection of Jesus the Christ #3

Posted on June 2, 2014 at 1:25 AM

The third reason I believe in the resurrection of Jesus is because the disciples were almost immediately transformed from men who were hopeless and fearful after the crucifixion (Luke 24:21, John 20:19) into men who were confident and bold witnesses of the resurrection (Acts 2:24, 3:15,&...
